Andrew Greene, chair of the firm’s Construction practice (ranked Tier 1 nationally for Construction Law in U.S. News “Best Lawyers and Law Firms” and Band 1 in Washington by Chambers USA), focuses his practice on construction and development law, including transactions and disputes. He has previously been recognized as a “Construction Law Lawyer of the Year” for Washington by The Best Lawyers in America.

Andrew has extensive experience assisting a broad group of public and private clients, including energy providers, universities, school districts, airports, port districts, hospitals, professional sports teams, major corporations, private developers and luxury homebuilders and owners, with their construction and development-related legal needs. Andrew regularly drafts and negotiates construction (fixed price, cost-plus, GC/CM, CM at Risk, EPC, design-build, and IPD), design, management and procurement agreements of all sizes (less than $100,000 to more than $500 million) and has worked on a diverse group of significant projects (everything from tidal energy in the Admiralty Inlet to road construction in the South Sudan) throughout the United States and internationally, including in India, Southeast Asia, Africa, Canada and the Caribbean.

Andrew’s project experience includes office buildings (including several corporate headquarters), mixed-use, retail, manufacturing (including “clean rooms”), agricultural, wastewater, medical, schools, residential (including luxury homes and student housing), parks, hotels, transportation (roads, light rail and tunnel) and energy (nuclear, natural gas, tidal and wind).

Andrew also helps clients resolve construction and development-related disputes through negotiation, alternate dispute resolution and trial practice. In the past several years, he has spent months in trial, trying cases in state and federal court and in arbitration. In addition, he regularly counsels clients on construction, procurement (including bid protest), prevailing wage, and public records issues.

Perkins Coie is a nationally recognized leader in construction law. Our attorneys represent public and private owners, design professionals, contractors and suppliers during all stages of construction—from project conception and funding through design, procurement and construction, as well as in dispute resolution.

We deal on a daily basis with the issues faced by participants in the construction process on public and private projects, large and small. We know the industry and understand the challenges that can arise. The strategic legal services we provide to clients include those outlined below.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in preparing and negotiating claims/requests for equitable adjustment in contract price and contract time on private and public projects. Since, in addition to technical issues, many claims involve allegations of delay and/or inefficiency and disruption, our experience in Critical Path Method (CPM) schedule analysis and in admissible damages calculations equip us to assist clients in developing strategies to resolve claims of every variety. 

Perkins Coie is a leading international law firm that is known for providing high value, strategic solutions and extraordinary client service on matters vital to our clients’ success.

With more than 1,200 lawyers in offices across the United States and Asia, we provide a full array of corporate, commercial litigation, intellectual property and regulatory legal advice to a broad range of clients, including many of the world’s most innovative companies and industry leaders as well as public and not-for-profit organizations.
